Parenting for independence

  1. Posted on February 28, 2019

Fifteen - that’s the age at which Australian parenting expert Michael Grose says children should be capable of looking after themselves, and their mum and dad become redundant as parents. While you hold that big breath you just inhaled, consider that in past centuries children often did leave home at this age to take up apprenticeships or other work. As Mr Grose says, and parents of older ...

Trinity and beyond . Overall my time at Trinity was a happy time. Outside of the academic and sporting environment, I really appreciated the opportunities I had to develop leadership skills. In my last two years in particular Br Siebert was a great mentor as we worked together on social programs such as, “Freedom from Hunger”.

In his own words... How sad, yet apt, that I should write these comments as one of the Voices to celebrate Trinity's 125th Anniversary in the same week that we have buried Brother Geoff Seaman, certainly the most profound influence on me during my schooldays at Trinity. Brother Seaman, or "George " as we boys knew him, taught me the life lesson that has stayed with me and sustained me more than once on the "dark night of the soul....

If it does, you’re not alone, as studies have found that at least 20% of the population have some degree of maths anxiety.

In his own words.... I consider myself extremely lucky to be part of the education system administered by the Christian Brothers. My colleagues and I had (and still have) great admiration for the Brothers who taught and guided us in the years from 1945-49. They were fine men and obviously good teachers both academically and on the sporting field. In the academic sphere, in our small leaving ...
